You know it's gonna be a good day when the plastic contact covers for the wall outlet you're working on end up falling off. Thankfully, I was replacing the faceplace, but I quickly scooted out to shut off the breaker to the room.

Finally got my copy of the 'sed & awk' book to use for reference. Been really needing something that can help me understand those two tools.

New whiteboard obtained, after my partner's bird accidentally ruined the previous one. Maybe I can finally get a little bit of coding done once I map things out on a surface that I can see.

@prologic (#<w3sqe3q https://twtxt.net/search?tag=w3sqe3q>) What the... Most of the FOSS community seem to be losing their collective minds with the whole RMS thing. I had to ditch FOSStodon and a number of o...

Oof... Looks like Twtxt.net is down again. Rebranding is rough, but this is really rough.

Oh hey! I'm actually keeping up with gitea updates for once. Just upgraded, and I feel a little better for it.

@jlj (#<crlquja https://twt.nfld.uk/search?tag=crlquja>) Yeah, I started using wttr when I first found out about it, and then remembered cht.sh again shortly after. Good luck with the golang project.

I swear, [cht.sh](https://cht.sh) is one of the most useful things I've come across while learning how to write code.

It's always difficult waiting for packages to arrive, but I think my bookshelves are happy to have a bit longer to relax. 😆

Old books purchased and on their way. 'Perl Resource Kit - Unix Edition', on its way to me. Really wanted the set because I couldn't find eBook versions of any part of it, and it'll look good on my bookshelf.

Trying to get [txtnix](https://github.com/mdom/txtnix) working, despite not being actively maintained. I've been tring to get into Perl development, and this looks like a fun one to hack on in my spare time.
[1.5 months ago]
Oh wow... Woke up to twtxt.net giving me 404s and 504s. Hope things are okay over there, cause I'm not getting anything from any of their users at the moment.

Huh... That last post of mine might have exposed a small bug. txtnish wouldn't post unless I removed the backticks I'd had in there. ...Time to learn sed and awk! 😀
[1.6 months ago]
It's almost 05:00, I've barely gotten good sleep, and I suddenly want to try and make a manpage for txtnish, just as groff practice. I swear, I'm not going crazy...

@movq I think I fixed it. Strange that nginx still doesn't default to UTF-8.
[1.6 months ago]
@prologic Agreed. Having the reply feature work with the threading would be nice.
[1.6 months ago]
I'm gonna need to hack on txtnish a bit when I have a chance, but I'm loving it so far. It's all sh/awk/sed, so going through it won't be an issue. 🙃
[1.6 months ago]
Just set up txtnish ( https://github.com/mdom/txtnish ) since twtxt (the python clinet) keeps failing on me. Let's see if this works out better.

Finally got around to ordering the slice battery for my Latitiude E6430 (it plugs into the docking connector on the bottom). That'll double the battery life, and it'll prop up the laptop when I need to work on battery, so two major pros to having it. I...
[1.7 months ago]
Had such bad batterly life running *nix on my laptop. Win7 gives 7.5 hours battery, Linux has shown around 2-3. Running a Linux VM on Windows 7? 7.25 hours. So at least I can have my work and gaming together in one place. Better than just not being abl...

Reading through 'Learn Python the Hard Way' by Zed Shaw, because so far, it's the only Python book that feels like it was made with some tact behind it. His lesson methods are blunt, but effective.
[1.7 months ago]
Good to see a few more people beginning to use twtxt again outside of the major pods. I much prefer this over the alternatives.
[5.4 months ago]
Getting used to things like RMAIL and elfeed for various things in Emacs again. I missed using this thing, though not as much as WordGrinder.

itch.io has really made indie gaming on Linux a viable option against Steam. I love it.
[5.8 months ago]
Ended up naming the new system 'colorparadise', since it has RGB lights. 😆
[5.9 months ago]
Really loving the new desktop I got as a gift. Runs Fedora like a dream, and as a gaming rig, it's very nice. And RGB lights are fun.

Took back the so-called /gaming/ desktop yesterday. Spent most of today exploring options for a used core system to upgrade. Really want a system for games to take my mind off things.
[6.1 months ago]
I'm so glad most of what I use is CLI/TUI. Tiny apps make for quicker compiles, so I'm not waiting twenty hours just to start doing things on the new setup.
[6.1 months ago]
Getting a new desktop today. That's gonna be fun to set up.
[1.1 years ago]
Someone I talked with suggested I single-boot *nix on my Mac Pro, cause then I could use the nVidia GTS 450 with it, and have a hell of a system to stream with. It's...tempting.

Terminal apps are really helping my RSI these days. Really thankful for them.
[1.2 years ago]
Trying to get into a bit of bash and lua scripting today. Also really need to learn the basics of C at some point.
[1.2 years ago]
Fillings done and over with. Now for a bit of recovery before the first of my wisdom teeth are taken own. Maybe I'll finally have time to work on something once it's all said and done.
[1.3 years ago]
I really need to find/make a nice zim-like wiki app for the terminal. orgmode-style stuff just isn't sufficent for my needs as a writer. Too much cross-referencing in my notes.
[1.3 years ago]
Finally have a working Xubuntu install on my desktop again. I am happy.
[1.3 years ago]
Being back on Windows feels so strange, but this GPU is going to be the death of me if I keep trying to force the matter on Linux.
[1.3 years ago]
Really wanting to sit back and read a nice book, but all of my ficiton books are currently in the garage because I don't have room for them inside. I'll have to change that eventually.

The more I use the modern web, the more I'm annoyed by the attention-grabbing aspects and bloat. Waiting seven seconds for a small group of thumbnails to load should not be a thing with broadband.
[1.3 years ago]
Really need to get myself added to we-are-twtxt when I can remember to contact the list maintainer.
[1.3 years ago]
It's dawned on me that twtxt is kinda what I wanted in an activitypub server: non-distracting, asyncronus, no database, tui/cli-oriented, and just plain simple. No push notifications for mentions, but that's something I could live with.

I've got my LG Fx0 (Firefox OS) sitting on my desk, and it always seems to remind me of the grudge I still hold against Mozilla for killing such an awesome phone OS. I'd take it over Android any day.
[1.3 years ago]
Just gave exa a try. Really love how nice it looks. It actually feels a bit snappier than ls as well.

Waking up and seeing my server not under strain means the start of a good day for me.
[1.4 years ago]
Finally got things set up with my server, my desktop is moved away from the floor, and I've got a little more space. Now if I weren't so sick.

Ratpoison has been my saving grace lately. Mostly due to my wrist being in such pain when I'm using a mouse, or even my trackball.
[1.4 years ago]
Giving this thing a try
